Data compiled by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis reveals the extent of the pay gap between federal and private workers. As of 2008, the average federal salary was $119,982, compared with $59,909 for the average private sector employee. In other words, the average federal bureaucrat makes twice as much as the average working taxpayer. Add the value of benefits like health care and pensions, and the gap grows even bigger. The average federal employee’s benefits add $40,785 to his annual total compensation, whereas the average working taxpayer’s benefits increase his total compensation by only $9,881. In other words, federal workers are paid on average salaries that are twice as generous as those in the private sector, and they receive benefits that are four times greater.

Team Obama banned Reverend Franklin Graham from the National Day of Prayer for speaking out against Islamic practice and terrorism. Lest we forget.
(Big Government) Last week, Evangelical Rev. Franklin Graham was disinvited from the National Day of Prayer event at the Pentagon because of his remarks about Islam which included, “When you look at what the religion [Islam] does to women and women alone, it is just horrid.” Due to the level of media coverage surrounding this event, it was the perfect opportunity for some feminist group to seize the moment and speak out against the atrocities committed against women every day in the name of Islam, but the establishment chose to remain silent.

Immigrant and South Dakota State Director, Kitty Werthmann, shares trends and truth. Kitty recognizes where America is headed because she lived under a regime that experienced a similar period in history.
Note gun registration issue, 3rd paragraph from the end:
“What I’m about to tell you is something you’ve probably never read, or will ever read in history books. I believe that I’m an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected Hitler by 98% of the vote. I’ve never read that in any American publication. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria over.
In 1938, Austria was in deep depression. We had nearly one third of our workforce unemployed, 25% inflation, and a 25% interest rate from banks. Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy every day. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work, but there simply wasn’t any work. My mother was a very devout woman who believed that you have to help the people in need. I remember she had a big kettle of soup every day, on the stove, and we baked bread to feed those poor hungry people, about thirty each day.
The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other. Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna, Lenzt, and Grotz were being destroyed. The people became desperate, and petitioned the government to let the people decide what kind of government they wanted. We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime. But they did have a high living standard. There was nothing being said of persecution of anyone, Jewish or otherwise, just that every one was happy. We wanted the same thing for Austria. We were promised that if we would vote for Hitler, everyone would be employed in two or three weeks, and he would help the family. He also said that businesses would be helped. And the farmers would get their farms back.
98% of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany, and have Hitler be our ruler. We were so joyful that for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. They opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed. After the election, everyone was appointed from Germany. Like a miracle, suddenly we had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was being created by the Public Work Service.
Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married women did not work outside of the home. The husband would be looked down (upon) because he couldn’t support a family. The teaching profession was overjoyed that women could go back to the jobs they gave up for marriage. Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good school; 98% of the population was Catholic at that time, so we had religion in our schools. the day we elected Hitler, March 13, 1938, I walked into my schoolroom and where we had a cruxifix it was replaced with Hitler’s picture and the flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class that we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. We sang Deutshland, Deutshland Uber Alis and had physical education instead. Our parents were not happy about the sudden change.

We posted an article last month about Wilder Publications and A&D Publishers apologizing for the US Constitution and claiming that it may no longer be relevant or applicable today. The Obama “apology” edition of the US Constitution can still be found on Amazon.com.
More details below.
Barack Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, is merely a symptom of America’s problems. The information about Barry was available long before he was elected to office. This video clip, filled with Barry’s history, has been pulled numerous times from YouTube, aka Google, to reset its “hit count” — yet it is currently (was) hovering around 1.8 million views.
UPDATE: The video was pulled again by Google. As of 08.08.10; [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHxb_vZe7Ao&feature=email]. We will attempt to find it elsewhere.
Found it! Someone copied it and posted it to YouTube with music. Won’t be up for long.
FOX News — “Nine people have been indicated in federal court on charges they accessed President Barack Obama’s student loan records while employed for a Department of Education contractor in Iowa.”
“They are accused of gaining access to a computer at a Coralville, Iowa, office where they worked between July 2007 and March 2009, and accessing Obama’s student loan records while he was either a candidate for president, president-elect or president.”

Another video that ran BEFORE the election: BELOW
This video has also been removed from YouTube (i.e. Google) countless times.
Steve Wynn, founder and owner of the Mirage, Bellagio, Wynn Resort, and Encore in Las Vegas, including casinos in Macau, gives a state of the union address (without teleprompters) and knocks it out of the park.
And who could forget Obama’s economic stimuli, telling Americans “don’t go to Vegas.” This report had to come from a british publication, while American mainstream media is practically silent.
(The Telegraph) A careless remark by President Barack Obama about Las Vegas has triggered a furious backlash from Nevada’s cash-strapped gambling city and a key Democratic ally fighting a tough re-election battle in the state.
Speaking about the economy at an event in New Hampshire, Mr Obama told Americans: “When times are tough, you tighten your belts.”
“You don’t go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage. You don’t blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you’re trying to save for college. You prioritise. You make tough choices.”

Unless there is a major fundamental shift in America, we are on a direct course to globalization and its resulting new world order. Follow the bouncing ball.
“France says EU wants global financial tax and EU nations will call on US, others to back global tax on financial transactions
French President Nicolas Sarkozy says European Union leaders want the United States and others to back a tax at a Group of 20 summit of rich and emerging nations in Toronto next week.
Sarkozy spoke Thursday at the 27-nation EU summit in Brussels.”
Joe Biden pushes the EU’s agenda: HERE
“On May 6, Vice President Joe Biden addressed the European Parliament in Brussels in which he encouraged the EU to support Washington’s global agenda and approach to threats such as climate change and terrorism.
The Vice President spoke of how the United States and Europe share a partnership. He said Europe continues to be the United States ‘most important ally’ and trading partner, and rehashed the U.S. role in helping rebuild Europe after World War II.
However, during the speech, Biden made quite the head-turning statement in praising Europe.
He stated that despite what some American journalists or politicians say, he would argue that Brussels, not Washington, DC or the United States, could be considered the “capital of the free world.”
Mr. Global Hopey regurgitates his bile.
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: A PROCLAMATION
Whereas a joint Committee of both Houses of Congress has waited on the President of the United States, and requested him to “recommend a day of public humiliation, prayer and fasting, to be observed by the people of the United States with religious solemnities, and the offering of fervent supplications to Almighty God for the safety and welfare of these States, His blessings on their arms, and a speedy restoration of peace:” –
And whereas it is fit and becoming in all people, at all times, to acknowledge and revere the Supreme Government of God; to bow in humble submission to his chastisements; to confess and deplore their sins and transgressions in the full conviction that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; and to pray, with all fervency and contrition, for the pardon of their past offences, and for a blessing upon their present and prospective action:
And whereas, when our own beloved Country, once, by the blessing of God, united, prosperous and happy, is now afflicted with faction and civil war, it is peculiarly fit for us to recognize the hand of God in this terrible visitation, and in sorrowful remembrance of our own faults and crimes as a nation and as individuals, to humble ourselves before Him, and to pray for His mercy, — to pray that we may be spared further punishment, though most justly deserved; that our arms may be blessed and made effectual for the re-establishment of law, order and peace, throughout the wide extent of our country; and that the inestimable boon of civil and religious liberty, earned under His guidance and blessing, by the labors and sufferings of our fathers, may be restored in all its original excellence: –
Therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, do appoint the last Thursday in September next, as a day of humiliation, prayer and fasting for all the people of the nation. And I do earnestly recommend to all the People, and especially to all ministers and teachers of religion of all denominations, and to all heads of families, to observe and keep that day according to their several creeds and modes of worship, in all humility and with all religious solemnity, to the end that the united prayer of the nation may ascend to the Throne of Grace and bring down plentiful blessings upon our Country.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed, this 12th, day of August A.D. 1861, and of the Independence of the United States of America the 86th.
By the President:
WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State
